From Thursday the Hugo Boss equivalent that is X-Bolt, will be reduced from £3.99 to £2.99 instore from Thursday the 20th.

This fragrance beat Boss in a blind test, worth a try surely?

Lidl has launched a brand new male fragrance in response to enormous public demand following on from the success of its female fragrance Madame Glamour last year.

Retailing at £3.99 for 50ml, the new Lidl fragrance G.Bellini X-Bolt beat leading designer brands up to ten times the price in a blind test by 108 people carried out in Mayfair in June1. Consumers preferred Lidl’s fragrance in the blind test, choosing it over Dior Homme, Hugo Boss Bottled, David Beckham Homme, and D&G The One as the perfume they would most want to buy.

In the test, Lidl’s own label fragrance scored an average of 6.2 out of ten. Beckham scored 4.8, Dior 5, and D&G and Boss scored 5.6. Male participants described the fragrance as “expensive smelling”, while female participants lauded the “fresh masculine fragrance”.

A Lidl spokesperson says “We had the most incredible response to our female fragrance when we launched that last year so we knew we had to create something really special that would blow people away again. We've definitely achieved that with the X-Bolt because it's already proven a massive hit with customers since it launched two weeks ago.”

The global market for fragrances and perfume is set to reach £20 billion by 2015 with the male fragrance market also predicted to grow rapidly with suggestions that this is motivated by “today’s metrosexual male’s desire to both look and smell good”2. But, according to Mintel, three in ten Britons think that fragrances are overpriced, which may explain the stampede to pay less for a high quality fragrance like X-Bolt!

This stuff is brilliant and smells just like the Hugo boss aftershave - brilliant stocking filler!

this has great reviews so i tried it . To be honest, it smells nice but the smell fades quickly so not really worth the praise it's received

I'm going to try it, forgot about it last time it was posted, noticed it in paper today, waiting on it being unexpired as I hit wrong button

Edit, seems when I hit expire it's not done it, so hope it stays that way

Here we go again...posted before on HUKD
Not all Lidl shops have it and I would not compare it with Boss. Smell might be similar,but lasts 5 X less than Boss. Wouldn't be using on myself as smells cheap after 20-30 minutes.
But as for a price- HOT!

Hi,

ive got to be honest and say that this aftershave is spot on. i am a big fan of aftershave, especially boss yellow, and you cannot tell the difference. it also lasts all day.

hope this helps someone

Over a month ago, so as per rules, it's allowed, but thanks for the vote.....

Agree with others. Smell lasts minutes unless you bathe in the stuff but does smell nice

I bought this stuff for my bf & dad- let me tell you its amaaaaaazing!! He gets loads of compliments and he never tells people where its from! Trust me I'm really into high end stuff i.e. Chanel etc and this is just as good!

This stuff is great. For those who are unsure if it lasts, well, for me it does. I was on a 12-hour flight a few weeks back and used this. When we got to Brasil, my mother-in-law asked what the perfume is cos I smelled so good! Therefore lasts the best part of a day for me.

I like it, but seems to last longer on clothes than skin. It was brilliant value at 3.99

Hot price, however there is absolutely NO stock anywhere around the Gloucestershire area :-(
Voted hot though!

It may be nice, but it's no "Hai Karate" is it?

this stuff last much longer than Hugo Boss - we tested it at work and it lasts over 9000 longer

Gr8 was gonna get some but will wait
Sweet have some heat!

it lasts for 24 hours.

WHAT?! NINE THOUSAND?! That rustles my jimmies!

Anyhoo, I bought this last month and can also report it smells great and seems to last pretty well.

Lots of stock in Blackburn!

I managed to get some and it does indeed smell like Hugo Boss.

As others have said it probably doesn't last as long but as it's only a few quid who cares.

I like Hugo Boss but when a bloke sprayed it on himself when I was in the same aisle in Lidl, I honestly couldn't get past him fast enough. To me, it's truly vile so it's not for everyone.

It smells harsh just as you spray but softens quickly.

found it nice initially but gets cloying and lasts too long.

maybe there are different varients???

Worth a go for £2.99, cheers

The last thing i want is the mother-in-law leaning in close to tell me i "smell so good"

If thats the effect, you can keep it! i want Outlaw repellant, not a Lynx effect!

Hot, ideal as a stocking filler for my 13 yr old

X-Bolt for Milf X)

Its already on sale at £2.99. The store I work at got a delivery of some yesterday and we put them in a table to go on sale for today at £2.99. Also for the record my gf loves it on me.

good smell but with loads of sprays it only lasts a few hours max..

If you can't get it try the Milton Lloyd copies which are good and have loads of choice including Boss. Really cheap delivered.

Also I should have said it shouldn't be store specific anymore, it is no longer a one off special as it is instead part of our usual line

Excellent for £2.99 Great Car Air Freshener too!

Just bought it, it really is like Boss Bottled, which I really like. While X-Bolt exists I'm not buying Boss Bottled again!!

Bought two bottles this morning at £2.99 .It smells just like Boss to me,but my Mrs thinks this is even nicer and it does seem to last well.Absolute bargain!

Plenty on shelf in Barnsley (new town end) branch.

I got 8 today (some for gifts some for me) still a tray left in acocks green

Just picked up one to see what the fuss was about smells exactly like hugo boss but didn't last long. Well worth the few quid though useful for a quick fresh up.
